How you read this....

"Paul Rodgers closed out his year-long run with Brian May and Roger Taylor on Thursday, April 13th, as the Queen + PR tour wrapped in Vancouver, British Columbia. Fans got to see Rodgers do songs made famous by the late Freddie Mercury, which might have been the hardest job in rock, and it's made him think about who could do his career justice. The singer told us that he's not going away anytime soon, but when that day comes, he knows who would be a good fit to replace him: "I think maybe Sheryl Crow could do the job. She's a great singer, she's got a lot of heart and soul, and she's a great songwriter, too. But I plan on sticking around, don't you worry!"


SOme say he means S. Crow should replace him in Queen? I do not. I think he means that if he ever retires S.C. would be a fitting replacement. What you think???
Even queenonline says "Queen & Sheryl Crow". Am I the only one who has a different opinion??
"Make his career justice" - he got more than a career BEFORE QPR didn't he?
As English is not my native tongue cmon you experts what you think????

I read it the same way you did. I don't think he's putting Sheryl Crow forward as a possible replacement for him in Q+PR or that he's suggesting that he's going to be sticking around Brian & Roger as Q+PR.
The article suggests that Q+PR has finished with the US tour & that Rodgers has now started booking solo gigs. It also asks him who he thinks could replace him, as he has supposedly been in the position to replace Freddie.

Yeah, I think the comment is taken out of context a bit. He's talking about who could replace *him*, not who could follow him up as Queen's frontman.

I was kinda hoping we'd see william hung...

Then we'd get to hear Roger say, "Oh God this is fucking nuts."


Roger: Can I go To Lunch Now?

Brian: No, You Can't...

---------------------------------------

Freddie: Oh Shit, All this crap again?!

This just makes me dislike Paul Rodgers more and more. The guy should be grateful and honored to be the lead singer of Queen, and just do his damn job, and not make dumb statements like this one!

The thought of Sheryl Crow fronting Queen makes me want to truly cry!

It's obvious to me that Paul here is talking about who might replace him as Freddie's replacement for Queen. There is no other possible context.

That is why his statement is asinine.

There's no way Brian and Roger would ever let something as radicalise like Crow fronting Queen .

I Paul was speaking about his career before Q+PR and who he thought would be a good person to sing his songs. He knows he doesn't speak for Queen.

Christina Aguilera should be next. She has a very good range and depth of voice. I think she could keep up with Freddie. I mean, she is the only one who can pull enough octaves out of her to sing like Freddie. Her personality is also similar to Freddie's, so she could work the crowd as well. I would love to see them both on stage, I wonder who would get more stage presence. That would be a good show.
